A leather case brings style and class to your iPhone. Leather is warm and classic, in lively contrast with the iPhone's cool modern glass and metal form. Leather can also lend a sort of gravitas to the whimsical colors in the iPhone XR line. Leather can vary widely in price — and quality — but on this list, you'll find an iPhone XR leather case for every budget.
Reasonably priced folio
The level of elegance at this price point is fantastic. Hand-crafted from Nubuck leather, the Snakehive Leather Wallet case has a delicious velvety feel.
Full Leather Slim Design
Soft, aged leather lends a silky smooth texture and classy look to your iPhone XR. This case is slim, sleek, and provides good protection all-around.
Lightweight and Moderate Price Tag
This Case-Mate Barely There leather case doesn't add a lot of bulk, but it still protects your phone with a leather exterior and microfiber interior.
Rugged and Cool
Nomad's Rugged Case is thin, yet protective, with six feet of drop protection. The Horween leather back blends seamlessly into the tough TPU bumper.
Mous cases are crafted from a high-impact material, and the Limitless 2.0 offers the option of a black leather back panel, with other materials available.
This highly-rated, inexpensive case is made from quality PU leather. Buyers love its soft texture, slim design, and the wide range of colors to choose from.
Fabric and PU Leather
KelaSip's Card Holder Case is a blend of tweed fabric and PU leather. The leather forms a slim pocket that you can use to carry a card or a bit of cash.

As a general rule, when it comes to leather, you get what you pay for. If you want your iPhone XR case to last you for years and develop that famous patina, you'll want to invest in one of the pricier options. A case made of PU leather isn't going to have the same longevity or luxurious feel, but that may not matter for some.
For the best mix of style, quality, function, and price, I'd go with the Snakehive Leather Wallet Case (opens in new tab). It looks and feels fantastic, with a medium price point. The wallet portion holds both cards and cash, the TPU lining protects the phone, and the case doubles as a stand for your device! This leather case really does have it all.
